AKA THE CONCLUSION TO ONE OF MY FAVORITE SERIES. I’ve had this book ever since 2017 when it came out, and procrastinated because I didn’t want it to end. Then I procrastinated some more. And I’ve been procrastinating ever since*. But I truly want to get to this within this next year!

*this is honestly the story of my life

LOL THIS ISN’T FUNNY AT ALL. This has been on my TBR for ages. I mean, West African-inspired fantasy with elemental magic????? Someone force me to pick this up already because clearly I’m failing miserably.

I bought this even before I read Scythe, and I read Scythe ages ago*. THIS IS PROBABLY SO GOOD BUT I WOULDN’T KNOW BECAUSE I PUT THINGS OFF. I’ve heard a lot of people say this is their favorite of the trilogy and I just need to yeet everything to the cliffs and finally read this one.

*i sound like a whiny teenager oops-

we all know why i haven’t read these two yet…

If you don’t, let’s just say that I’m currently in the middle of Lord of Shadows. It’s been like that for a couple years now.

I obviously really enjoyed the Seven Realms series. And this is the spin-off! And I haven’t read it! Why am I like this! Honestly, Cinda Williams Chima is one of the most underrated authors ever and it really saddens me that more people don’t give her credit.

That’s it! I almost forgot to post this so I’m not going to tag anyone, but please do this if you wish!!

  1. I just finished Thunderhead a few weeks ago and goodness it was intense; I had to read it all in two sittings. Lovely post; I hope you get around to reading these soon 🙂

  2. Children of Blood and Bone has been on my shelves for FOREVER, I really need to read this book as soon as possible. And well we all know that I haven’t read Thunderhead *sigh*. And oh boy Lord of Shadows is HUGE! But to be honest, I was a bit underwhelmed by Lady Midnight so I don’t really know if I want to read it.

  3. Great list! I bought Children of Blood and Bone recently and I’m so excited to read it! I have never read anything written by Cassandra Clare before 🙈
